You may have noticed something similar to "posted by philmon" at the end of that last post ... "posted by jeffmon". Brother Jeffmon (yes, he is actually my brother) is now a contributor to this blog! Whenever he feels the urge.
And yes, I shamelessly heisted the rastafarian suffix from "jeffmon" when I started this blog back in .... eh? Aught Three! (makes me sound real old timey, doesn't it?).
Check out his post on Term Limits. He is right. I have been against term limits on principle myself. They're tempting, but it ultimately only masks one of the symptoms. It doesn't address the cause of the disease. Would I be sad to see them? No. But the lack of them isn't what got us where we are today.
They could certainly help the situation.
